Ashley Kallus » Welcome


Welcome to Mrs. Kallus' Pre-K webpage!
This is my 7th year of teaching Pre-K and my 5th year at HES. 
I am a proud graduate of HISD and Texas A&M University.
My husband and I were both born and raised in Hallettsville and look forward to sending our own children to HISD. I have two daughters, Lynley (4) and Kendis (1) and a little boy will be arriving this November.
I am excited to get to know your child this year and get each student ready for Kindergarten!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
My conference time is 8:10-8:45.
Please click through the different links to see more about our class.
